I realized a few months ago while receiving therapeutic level ultrasound on my lower back, I can HEAR it. I didn't know this was anything out of the ordinary until I mentioned it to my physical therapist she told me that I was the first patient in 37 years to be able to hear it that she's seen. I had a few ultrasounds after that and I was able to hear them as well.
It sounds very much like the crackling noise you hear with a Geiger counter or a lot of "static" or bubbling/fizzing.
I'm not sure how this works or how it is happening. I didn't see an audiology forum on this site to post in.
I also hear a similar bubbling/crackling sound just prior to or during a hunger pang. It sounds like I am hearing the noise from inside my neck.
Is there a connection? Should I be concerned? What causes this?
In my perception is seems as though I am hearing fluid noises through my skeleton.
